What the hell is this? Is this even a horror film? You don't actually get to see any real horror 'till 50 minutes into the flick. Most of the film is just the couples going at it. Like I said to a friend earlier, I feel as though I've lost brain cells having watched this crap. It basically starts off with couples going off to the country-side to watch some dumbass friend of theirs show off his boat and fix it up a bit. Besides the lame plot, there's crappy acting and directing too. The thing that kept me watching was spotting the boom mic in every shot. I don't see how they could just leave that in there. The director must have been on the brink of going blind because the mic was so easy to spot. It was actually kind of fun spotting it.

There's obviously a lot of pointless nudity in the film since I mentioned the couples go at it a lot. That's basically most of the movie right there. When the killings do start they're nothing special, just some lame hanging and a few more wasted deaths. The killer was so predictable, in fact, the whole movie is predictable. I was so freakin' confused when I was watching the film, because I kept wondering where the hell they were going and why people would get mad for no apparent reason. There are so many plot holes and things that confuse you that you spend 15 minutes of your time trying to figure out what the hell just happened 15 minutes ago.

The mask the killer used for the film was some cheap-ass mask that I assumed was the only mask left that the prop guy could get his hands on. It's like one of those masks that are left behind in stores the day before Halloween, because all the good masks are already taken. If I could give this film a lower rating I would.

One of the crappiest films I've ever seen. A waste of a slasher film, and you don't even realize it's a slasher until 50 minutes into the film. Don't waste your time on this unless you're an aspiring director that wants to make sure not to make the same mistakes the director for this film did. Try to keep the boom mics outta the shot people.
